Some Foundry tribal musketeers , the images have come out quite shiny due to the flash.... I hope.
Close up of the musketeers.
The other group.
These tribal musketeers will probably be some of the most useful miniatures I have got. They appear in the majority of the army lists for Chris Peers Heart of Darkest Africa , henceforth on this blog to be known HoDA.
Bearers , 14 Foundry and 4 Dixon Dahomey range. These were painted some time ago.
DOAG askaris by Copplestone Castings being attacked by a Foundry Lion , also painted some time ago. I will use these 10 askaris as the basis for my Carl Peters expedition.
A group of Askaris including a lone FP who missed the previous photo shoot.
A few more askaris and gun bearers, all by Foundry. The guy in the middle is my favourite miniature I have painted for Africa so far.
So there we have it, if I can get the 6 white guys done next week I have now got enough for a game , in fact more than enough to play HoDA , the Belgians in particular are very expensive points wise.
I will probably have a break from painting Africa miniatures for a bit, once I have got the 6 mentioned above done. I have 80 odd Azande , about 60 Masai the Dixon Dahomey range and a few bits and pieces including animals in a unpainted state , but I will be going back to VSF for a short while.
